    Big find in the south of France

    bet the stutz brings no more then 15-18k. these cars were just let go for too long.
  2. I had my hands on this car seven days ago..... Is that the one in Hemmings now for 250k?
  3. 450 million paid for Salvatore Mundi by da Vinci and half of the opinions out there consider it a "fake"....................

    Big find in the south of France

    not so sure Roger................ many need a ton of parts. Easier to start out in Europe with a much nicer car then to try and piece together a lot of rust. shipping is cheap compared with the condition of most of these cars. this is rat rod material.
  5. True al- maybe not lost- but definitely undiscovered. So much wealth was in France and Switzerland after WW2 and the people who own them, dont need the money. In the last 2 yrs, 1000s of paintings were "discovered" in Germany that an art dealers son held. Value in the billions............ he wasnt advertising............... located right in a major city. Totally unknown.
  6. maybe even a few Duesenbergs? At least 10-20 sitting in garages throughout Europe.

    Big find in the south of France

    not worth the shipping fees.....................
  8. still looking for an original model A ford vicki as well as a 30-31 roadster in original condition meaning........... original paint, upholstery, top. chrome, etc. mechanical can be repaired. rusty and crusty is my preference. what do you have?
  9. yes Jim, just sold a nice 31 tudor because I didnt want it- only a vicki. As you get older in life, you can settle or just wait for what you want. Ill wait................ lol! ps did find one in Hemmings, but too much $ for what it is and all the way out west.

    not a chevy, unless the end was cut off almost any crank handle is going to need a catch on the end............
  11. has anyone done this? was the body just considered parts or was a title needed? please dont speculate. Only those who have done it or a friend whos done it.......... thanks!
  12. well, found an unrestored A400 that would have fit the bill, on Mafca, but fella wants too much and is none negotiable.

    1930 Cadillac V-16 Club Sedan

    Nice car! When looking at this one and the price, compared to the 8ook speedster listed several months back, this seems a bargain. Yes, I know they are not one and the same. But money ALWAYS matters.

    question- shipping a body US to ENgland

    body is in Nebraska, being shipped to NJ and shipper ships daily from NJ to England. as mentioned- just put on a pallet and bill of sale. no title needed for a body only. good to learn. PS Bernie, your taste has gone downhill!
  17. sell them on CL as rollers- I do it often with model A tires and they go pretty fast.

    regarding hotels and motels........ if on a budget, you might want to consider air B and B. very affordable. If money is no object, then stay at the Hershey Lodge.
